The Memory Book
by Jack Dyville
Playwright’s Note: At no time during the action should Joseph ever touch John, nor should he actually hold the Book, remembering that he appears in ghost form. He IS directed to finally embrace him during the final lines.
Alone in Washington Square Park, John sits with his “Memory Book,” remembering his best friend, Joseph, a pioneer victim lost to AIDS. John cherishing the memories of their show business careers, their lives and good times together, fulfills the promise they made of spending their older years being able to reminisce here rather than at the Old Actors Home. Today, Joseph is there in the park – on the bench – with John for the first time and together they re-live two lives intertwined with a passion for living! Why is Joseph there today, after all these years? Not just another ‘AIDS play,’ The Memory Book is a poignant, heart-warming play which steps into the realm of fantasy, friendship and love; told against a backdrop of laughter and tears!
